How Disruptive Is Installing Central Heating?

When we talk to homeowners concerning their central heating replacement, we hear a lot of negative adjectives to describe this process. We hear words like difficult, tedious, or disruptive. Although we understand why you might associate central heating replacement with these feelings, it doesn’t necessarily mean that this has to be the case. We can help you with your new heating system installation in Manitou Springs, CO.

We want the word “disruptive” to be the furthest thing from your mind when it comes to your central heating. It’s easy for us to do because we’re responsible and highly trained professionals. Let’s talk about everything you need to know concerning your central heating.

How Long Does It take to Install Central Heating?

First things first, let’s figure out how long it should take to install your home’s central heating system. Your new system installation will take anywhere from 1 and 5 days to get done. The timing really depends on your home, your personal needs, and the number of technicians working on your unit. For example, one technician working to replace a severely outdated 30-year-old furnace will likely take much longer than two technicians working to replace a 15-year-old furnace. In either case, our technicians will work their fastest to replace your heater.

How to Keep Disruption to a Minimum

If you’re worried about disruption, there are things you can do to keep this problem to a minimum. Being informed and planning ahead can help with this. Here are a few ways you can prepare:

  • Cover your carpets with sheets or plastic to keep them clean.
  • Keep your valuables away from working areas to prevent damage.
  • Stock up on drinks. Your water will be turned off so make sure that you can stay hydrated.
  • Plan your meals. You’re not going to have gas so it’s important to plan out your meals ahead of time.
  • Consider a portable heater. You’re going to be without a heater for a moment. If you think you’ll be cold, then it’s worthwhile to get yourself a portable electric heater.

Is New Central Heating Worth the Disruption?

Yes, new central heating is worth the disruption. There’s nothing worse than waiting too long to upgrade your home’s heater and accidentally ushering yourself into a heating breakdown. Prompt work means that you’re not going to deal with the headaches that come along with procrastination. 

Central heating replacement is also cost-effective. While a purchase like this is expensive, the upgrade to your heater efficiency will save you money. AFUE (annual fuel utilization efficiency) ratings for furnaces are higher than ever in new models. We’ll help you find the one that’s right for you.
